    Answer:

    see the explanation

    Step-by-step explanation:

    we know that

    A linear function in slope intercept form is equal to

    y=mx+b

    where

    m is the slope or unit rate

    b is the y-intercept or initial value

    In this problem we have a linear function between the total cost and the number of miles

    Let

    y —-> the total cost in dollars

    x —-> the number of miles

    The slope or unit rate is equal to

    m=\frac{0.50}{1.5}=\$0.33\ per\ mile

    The y-intercept is equal to the flat fee

    b=\$2.50

    substitute the given values

    The linear function that model the situation is

    y=0.33x+2.50
